Some of the X–ray temporal and spectral properties of accret ing black holes represent a challenge for current theoretical models. In particular, uncor related variability between direct continuum and reflection components (including the iron line, i f present) has been reported in many cases. Here, we explore a light bending model in which we assume a primary source of X–rays located close to a central, maximally rotating Kerr b lack hole and illuminating both the observer at infinity and the… CONTINUE READING
